Once again, it's That Time: Time for me to ask you all to tag your posts in this community.  Tags allow the archiving of your posts so that they don't get lost, which means that you and the rest of the world can always find them.  Our older posts are in the Recipe Index & FAQ, but posts since LJ tags were made available are to be found by means of these  fabulous wee  taggie things.

Just about every post on tagging, the reasons for doing it, and how to achieve LJ Tag Godhood is to be found  here , or by clicking on the --tags tag attached to this post.

So, bon appetite, mes amis, et bon... er... whatever the French for tagging is.

Peanut butter and banana toasted tortillas

Hey lovely vegan peoples! I hope your day is treating you well so far :)

This afternoon after having completed my first attempt at making vegan cheesecake (have yet to try it) I thought I needed some lunch, only to discover nothing I felt like. That is until I saw the peanut butter in the fridge and the bananas on the kitchen bench. HELLO, YUM!
But, alas, when I went to get the last bun out the pantry to make peanut butter and banana on a bun under the grill, there was no bun! It was sad.

So, off to the freezer I went and what do you think I found hiding in there?


"Snap!" I thought, "I shall have peanut butter and banana tortillas and put them in the sammich press."

So, that is what I did.

It was really yummy and could be eaten any time of the day, really. I think they'd be nice with mayple syrup or caramel sauce. Or icecream!

quinoa and quinoa?

so i get my quinoa in the bulk bins at my local whole foods. when i usually get it, it's a tiny little ball with a slightly yellowish tinge. i just looked at the last batch i got and it seems to be a little more gray/brown and more like a flat disc with a little squiggle on one side. after some searching online, they both seem to be quinoa. anyone know the difference? is one milled? am i not supposed to be eating the yellow globe part?
and on a slightly related topic i've never washed/soaked said grain. and i've never had a soapy taste either. do some places prewash/soak [other than prepackaged]?

An Embarrassment of Peppers

Due to finding cheap peppers at the grocery store yesterday (and having an ambitious fiancé), I now have approximately 2 pounds of assorted peppers in my fridge. They are: anaheim, cubanelle, jalapeño, hungarian, poblano, and serrano.

I have ideas of what to do with the jalapeños (I'm looking forward to trying out the Cumin-Spiced Wagon Wheels with Jalapeño Pesto recipe from Vegan Planet). Any advice on what to do with miscellaneous peppers?
